Bob Fox December 8, 2011 at 8:03 pm

I’m going to guess Steratore in Pittsburgh since it’s Christmas and he hasn’t done a Steelers game at all this year.


Russ December 12, 2011 at 3:13 am

I have a feeling Triplette is going to work the Atlanta-New Orleans MNF game. Him and Parry are the only two refs who have not done a Monday Night Game and Parry is ineligible for this game.


Michael December 15, 2011 at 4:03 pm

I am guessing Boger in Indy and Parry in Green Bay since they have the fewest “primetime” games


Shane Spencer December 15, 2011 at 7:36 pm

Jerome Boger is eligible for ATL @ NO.


Russ December 16, 2011 at 12:46 am

I have the same exact guesse Michael


Joe Platania December 16, 2011 at 9:53 am

Thanks to Preth’s explanation on the Week 15 page, my guesses for CLE-BAL are Coleman, Triplette, Steratore and Carey, although the point made about Steratore not doing PIT all year is valid…


Steve December 18, 2011 at 4:10 pm

Yeah and Steratore lives in Pittsburgh so I bet he does that game.


Joe Platania December 16, 2011 at 11:27 am

Well, what do you know? My ref source within the Ravens has told me it’s COLEMAN for CLE-BAL. First on the board this week!


david December 16, 2011 at 7:10 pm

Joe, Great job !!! Now just find out who the referee will be for the AFC Championship game in Baltimore next month !!!


Preth December 16, 2011 at 7:28 pm

Jumping the gun a little bit? :P


david December 16, 2011 at 7:36 pm

Hey, I didn’t pay my $599.00 for nothing this season !!! lol


david December 16, 2011 at 7:43 pm

Joe, 2nd time for the Milkman doing a Ravens game !!! Worked the week #9 game against Pittsburgh !!! Preth that makes it the 4th crew to work the Ravens 2 times this season. {reg. season}


Rodney December 18, 2011 at 11:18 am

Any idea who will be doing the eagles @ biys game?


Preth December 18, 2011 at 11:52 am

Not until the middle of the week.


Kenneth December 18, 2011 at 1:21 pm

One of Anderson, Corrente, Cheffers, Triplette, Leavy or Steratore.

Each of these crews, except Triplette have had two or three PT games …neither Leavy or Corrente has had had SNF, while Cheffers and Steratore had it twice. While flex scheduling does mess up PT assignments I’d venture a guess at Triplette who only has one PT game, and has not had it since wk 5….also, Triplette has only had Eagles once, and not yet had Dallas


Kenneth December 18, 2011 at 1:23 pm

and you can ignore all that primetime info because I forgot next week is Christmas, and all the games are Saturday except for Chi-GB. But those 6 crews are eligible.


Kenneth December 18, 2011 at 1:25 pm

Also, I’ll venture that Parry takes the Christmas Day game next week. He’s only had one primetime game as well, lives close-ish to Wisconsin and has had neither GB or Chicago all season


SportingBecky December 18, 2011 at 4:21 pm

Guess for WK #16 2011 – Ed Hochuli

Dolphins VS Patriots
Jaguars VS Titans
Falcons VS Saints


SportingBecky December 19, 2011 at 12:53 am

WK #16

Buffalo – Anderson
Pittsburgh – Blakeman
Indianapolis – Boger
Detroit – Hochuli
Cincinnati – McAulay
Tennessee – G. Steratore


Brian December 21, 2011 at 10:53 pm

I’ll take “NFL Referees Named Clete” for $200.

This man will be the head official for the St. Louis Rams at the Pittsburgh Steelers game played at 1 p.m. Dec. 24.


Who is Clete Blakeman?



Preth December 21, 2011 at 10:55 pm

Thanks for the confirmation!


SportingBecky December 19, 2011 at 12:54 am

R-85 in Detroit WK #16


Bronson December 18, 2011 at 8:44 pm

ok couple guesses Based on Minimal Primetime exposure John parry will indeed be in Greenbay and Jeff Tripplette in New Oreleans guesses only from me


jc December 19, 2011 at 12:48 am


Buffalo – Anderson
Pittsburgh – Blakeman
Indianapolis – Boger
Detroit – Hochuli
Cincinnati – McAulay
Tennessee – G. Steratore


Nita December 19, 2011 at 3:57 pm

Yep, your right on, Hochulis in Detroit on the 24th and the
following week he is in New Orleans on the 1st.


Pat December 19, 2011 at 9:43 am

David first you have to win out and hope Pittsburgh looese and then it won’t be in Baltimore even if they do it will be in Foxboro home of the Patriots


david December 19, 2011 at 4:41 pm

Yes in Foxboro, They have done so well there in the postseasson the last two years !!!


Kenneth December 19, 2011 at 10:47 am

Scott Green must have the bye week since Blakeman and McAulay are working


Kenneth December 19, 2011 at 10:55 am

and Riveron must be in New England


Kenneth December 19, 2011 at 10:56 am

and Morelli must be in the Meadowlands for Giants-Jets, as he is the only eligible ref for it


Kenneth December 19, 2011 at 11:00 am

and thus, finally, these are my guesses for what is not known, nor is a given with process of elimination:

OAK-KC — Carl Cheffers
MIN-WASH — Tony Corrente w/ Scott Green (if Parry and Leavy play out, this is the only possibility)
TB-CAR — Mike Carey
SF-SEA — Ron Winter
PHL-DAL — Bill Leavy (if Parry is in GB, he has to be in DAL)
CHI-GB — John Parry (would be $$$$)
ATL-NO —Jeff Triplette (would bet $$)


Kenneth December 19, 2011 at 11:05 am

sorry for all these posts,
since Morelli is the only eligible ref for NYG-NYJ, it means Triplette must have MNF ATL-NO


Ryan December 19, 2011 at 12:43 pm

Al Riveron is in New England. Confirmed from Patriots PR and Media Notes.


Camps in Chicago December 19, 2011 at 1:43 pm

Zach Zaidman, sideline reporter for Chicago Bears, just announced via Twitter that Parry is indeed in for CHI @ GB on Christmas night.


Kenneth December 19, 2011 at 2:48 pm

Awesome, so we can guarantee that Leavy is doing PHL-DAL and Corrente (w/ Green) has MINN-WASH

that means that these are the remainders:

Carey – OAK-KC, TB-CAR or SF-SEA
Cheffers – OAK-KC or TB-CAR
Winter – TB-CAR or SF-SEA


Preth December 19, 2011 at 2:54 pm

Yep. And with Joe83′s Cheffers assignment, we could possibly complete the list in a record amount of time.


Joe Platania December 20, 2011 at 10:15 am

That was me, not Joe83. We’re not the same guy, but we’ve never been seen in the same room at the same time! :)


Preth December 20, 2011 at 10:48 am

I’m confused. You’ve been providing the Cheffers assignments, even though you’re not Joe83?

JOE83 December 20, 2011 at 10:08 pm

Hi Preth: I´m not Joe Platania but confirm the assignment of Carl´Cheffers’ Crew in Bank of America Stadium (Tampa Bay @ Carolina, Sunday 01:00 P.M. ET)

Preth December 20, 2011 at 10:20 pm

Works for me. Thanks for the confirmation, Joe. :)

Gerry December 19, 2011 at 2:12 pm

Parry’s first game ever in Green Bay. He still has yet to work in Chicago and Denver


daveydy December 19, 2011 at 2:18 pm

Preth or anyone, Does anybody REALLY know how Tony Corrente is really doing? He was supposed to ref Seattle-Chicago but Hochuli ended up subbing for him.


Preth December 19, 2011 at 2:25 pm

I’ve got the distinct impression that he’s hanging in there – well enough that he had a legitimate shot to work last week’s game. Otherwise Hochuli would have been scheduled to work that game from the very beginning.

Unfortunate that it didn’t work out, but maybe he’ll be able to recover during the offseason and be in good health for the start of next season.


Gerry December 19, 2011 at 2:20 pm

Neither Boger nor Carey has done a west coast game yet this year. Furthest Carey has been is Denver and Boger Arizona


jc December 19, 2011 at 8:41 pm

Boger was in Den the first week this season…


SportingBecky December 19, 2011 at 6:20 pm

Niceeeeeeeeeeee….. I my other Photog friend from Facebook and Twitter who took photos of Ed Hochuli during the AFC Championship game 2011 Jets VS Steelers……….

>>>>> Will be at the Chargers VS Lions game WK #16 2011… YES!

I received some nice ones this past week and they are posted on NFL85.com site!!!


Bronson December 20, 2011 at 12:10 am

I was actually right and im thinking well see Carey in Kansas City and Cheffers In Carolina hope im right 2 times this week :D


Gerry December 20, 2011 at 8:03 am

Hope to see Cheffers in Carolina because he has yet to work a regular season game there according to my stats


Ryan December 20, 2011 at 10:39 am

Mike Carey in Kansas City. Confirmed by Chiefs PR.


Preth December 20, 2011 at 10:43 am

Joe, Gerry, and Ryan – the spam filter is a bit wonky right now, sorry that your posts didn’t go instantly.


Gerry December 20, 2011 at 2:46 pm

thnx Preth I had a feeling there was a problem


Ryan December 20, 2011 at 10:58 am

Just FYI….according to my sources at Ashburn Park for the Skins Tony Corrente is a game time decision. There was mention from Carl Johnson that a replacement might be named at the last minute to fill in for Corrente. That replacement was not named at this time but one would conclude with Green living in the VA/DC area with his job that he would be more than likely to be that fill-in as most have already stated.


Kenneth December 20, 2011 at 12:27 pm

I agree. We’d know by Firday at latest since Corrente lives in Cali, he obviously wouldn’t fly out. If for some reason Green can’t go, Boger lives in ATL and I think Triplette is on the east coast somewhere. Parry is in Ohio


Bronson December 21, 2011 at 9:26 am

Triplette is in Charolette


Kenneth December 21, 2011 at 1:24 pm

He used to live in Charlotte because he was an executive for Duke Energy, but I think I read somewhere he left taht job and just lives on the east coast now


Michael December 21, 2011 at 1:32 pm

I believe I read somewhere he is now living in Alabama

Kenneth December 21, 2011 at 7:39 pm

I just looked it up a fe whours ago, and for some reason it didn’t post when i commented. He is in Oxford, Mississippi, where FNC, Inc. is headquartered

david December 20, 2011 at 6:44 pm

Did anyone notice the Vegas line went down 4.5 points last week in the Chiefs – Packers game ???


James December 21, 2011 at 7:26 pm

Would like to give Cheffers some kudos for calling maybe the best game of the year. Quick and clean.


James December 21, 2011 at 7:27 pm

Last Sunday Night’s game, to be specific.


Gerry December 24, 2011 at 10:03 am

Just came up with this strange stat lol , Scott Green who is off this week has not worked a game in the “south” , the three cities in Florida and Atlanta since 2008


nita December 24, 2011 at 12:16 pm

Hey Tom, you had an excellent answer to one of the questions for you the other day. I’d give it a 50 on a scale of 1-10.



bronson December 24, 2011 at 1:06 pm

tony is working his game glad to see him back and able to give it the go hes a pro! Merry christmas to all


Ryan December 24, 2011 at 1:14 pm

I meant to send a message yesterday but got wrapped up in work stuff. Saw Tony yesterday. Looks a little skinnier and missing his hair however was in good spirits and glad to be back.


Preth December 24, 2011 at 1:28 pm

Great to hear!


Ryan18 December 24, 2011 at 1:46 pm

Good to see Corrente back in action in Washington this week
